Unfortunately, there comes a time in many marriages from Wisconsin and throughout the country when the couple realizes that their decision to tie the knot was wrong. The reasons are innumerable. But before actually filing for divorce, many couples first undergo a legal separation.
Now, the question is how do you convert a legal separation to a divorce? First is by stipulation, in which parties convert a legal separation to a divorce by mutual consent. The FA-4162 court form allows two spouses to convert a legal separation into a divorce. There is no waiting period for this procedure and a legal separation can be converted into a divorce at any time during a separation.
